Belay Clinics

We offer two clinics currently being held at the Indoor Rock Wall within Myers Field House.

Introduction to Belaying and Ropework

  • 7pm-8:30pm

This class is for climbers who are new to the sport. Climbers will work on proper knot tying, equipment usage and belay techniques. The course is 1 hour in length.

Introduction to Lead Climbing and Lead Belaying*

  • 8:30pm-10pm

This class will give climbers foundations of becoming a Lead Climber and Lead Belayer. Climbers will be instructed on ropework, climbing, gear and risk management of Lead Climbing. Climbers must be able to climb 5.9 (Yosemite Decimal System) comfortably to take the class.

*Participants need to be top rope belay certified before signing up for a Lead Climbing and Lead Belay Clinic. Top rope and Lead clinics cannot be competed in the same week.


Clinics are free for current MSU students and $10 for non students. Sign up for a clinic with our staff to learn how to belay.
